Is there a way to make tray icons appear on the dock instead of adding PPAs and stuff?

Not exactly system tray icons programs, but can be useful depending on what you want to achieve exactly :

  • you can put icons in Plank dock and associate them with a program or a script through defining .desktop files in ~/.local/share/applications

  • some 'docklets' are already available with 'Ctrl + right click the Dock' -> Preferences -> Docklets

Good explanations and examples are provided here : https://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/plank
